Young People as Trainers

We train and support young people to improve the care system now and for the future working collaboratively with social services to train young people in and leaving care to deliver training to social workers, foster carers and youth workers, to interview social care staff or sit on advisory groups to help improve the care system for others


We deliver training to newly qualified social workers every half term, see the following training to Newly Qualified Social Workers  by clicking to find out more


This is what newly qualified social workers said about the training...


"Thank you very much for an informative and enjoyable day. I found it really interesting to hear differnt perspectives of similar experiences.

The activities reinforced the importance of communication and co-operation.

Both young people were excellent facilitators, spoke openly and honestly about their experiences.

Thank you very much" Dave


"The training was presented in a relaxed and informal style! I especially enjoyed the games with the young people, for me this strengthened the information that was being presented. I was impressed by the young people's confidence in facilitating and presenting the day and definately recommend this to other socail workers"  Caroline
